My favorites are seared Ahi Tuna and King Crab. I have also had Muktuk and used to eat a lot of moose meat(before I was pescetarian) which is very, very good! My husband loves duck.

In case you can’t tell, I am Alaskan. Lol

I adore venison, rabbit, squirrel, and pheasant! Goat is quite tasty as well.

I’ve tried both kangaroo and crocodile, and both were really tasty.  Kangaroo is apparently a cheap meat in Australia, but it was really delicious and not very fatty.  We had kangaroo burgers (in addition to steaks and whatnot), and the meat never really browns, so it was a little weird to eat really red burgers.  My inner health inspector was freaking out!

I really like venison but it can be pricey, same for duck and wild boar.

I’ll try just about anything, I can’t buy these where I am but I’ve also had reindeer, ostrich and kangaroo. Wasn’t a fan of crocodile myself, and I dislike pretty much all seafood.

Edit – remembered goat after seeing it above, goat curry is amazing!

Alligator is pretty good and venison is wonderful. Also it’s super cheap when you hunt and process your.own! And no factory farms involved.

Geez, I was going to say buffalo is good, but after seeing kangaroo, crocodile, squirrel, and muktuk… well, buffalo isn’t that unusual. Haha. I don’t eat meat anymore, but I did like that buffalo is good and kind of like beef but a little less fatty.

Venison is probably the only “exotic” meat I’ve ever tried. It was tasty but I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat it again.

@AB Bride:  I mean deer but I think technically it applies to other stuff (elk, reindeer, moose or any “game” animal) but the common usage would be deer meat.

@AB Bride:  Yes. The black part is whale skin the pink (or white or grey, depending on the whale) is blubber. It’s chewy and delicious.

Love bison, have had venison and it’s fine, alligator and it just kinda tasted like chicken lol. I love. Had duck recently and it was amazing! I’m open to other meat sources, as long as it’s not organs. I really can’t get my mind over eating non-muscular meats for the most part (like liver, etc)
